The earliest fruiting Peach, & doesn’t get brown rot. Very heavy crops of 4-5cm round white fleshed fruit. Fresh, sweet & tasty straight of the tree, or even better when stewed. Best in a sunny site with well drained soil. Compact tree 3m tall and wide.
1.4m to 1.7m
This is our favorite early peach, it comes ripe when there is no decent fruit in the fruit stores, and is the first of the summer fruit. It is a compact tree to around 3m tall and wide (can be kept trimmed lower). Produces buckets and buckets of fruit – we eat, stew, bottle, freeze as much as we can and there is still spare. There are always limited numbers of these as no-one else seems to grow them.
